Hey Sandy, Welcome to BPN excellent first post in macro/flora. I like this alot. Good comp, love the lighting, and excellent BG. Maybe a very slight crop on top. Well done.

Looks to me as though the lighting set-up is working well, and this is an aspect they comes over very nicely here
Being critical regarding the overall composition - perhaps this area would have been improved slightly by a less acute angle of subject. It would appear to my eye that this bloom already had a naturally pleasing curve in the stem already, I don’t think you really needed to enhance this aspect
Probably a very subjective / taste related remark regarding the overall composition, and a very appealing image regardless
All the best
